The Sermon on the Mount

The Sermon on the Mount is one of the most poignant and beautiful sermons ever given. It was beautiful and powerful and simple at the same time.

The people were amazed and filled with wonder. No one had ever taught them that way. It was a masterpiece. The people flocked to Jesus after this, as the Truth that He preached was so beautiful that it attracted everyone.

He acknowledged the old laws of Moses and strengthened these laws and extended these laws further. The whole of the sermon was devoted to teaching us about the Laws of God. The Laws that we had forgotten about and that had been buried in the many rubrics of the Mosaic law where the essential had been lost because of layers of man-made additions to the essential.

The old Mosaic laws had become too complicated and too numerous and confusing to most people. It came to be that you had to be very learned to understand any of it. This of course was never intended by God Whose Laws were written in such a simple way that all could understand them.

So the people of Israel had become lost and buried under the yoke of the misinterpreted Mosaic laws which became a burden and an obstacle to most people.

Jesus liberated them from this rigidity and the people were overjoyed.
